BERLIN (Reuters) - German industrial production fell unexpectedly in October, the Economy Ministry said, adding that public holidays at the start of the third-quarter that prompted many workers to take long weekends had significantly contributed to the fall.
Capital goods, consumer goods, intermediate goods and construction fell the most.
"The favourable situation concerning orders and, above all, more optimistic business expectations promise a continuation of good industrial activity," it said.
